Well, now I don't know which side of the discussion you are taking. My issue was with this quote where you characterized what Theists thought:
I think, Mr. T., that your "...many theists have told me that God wouldn't make his actions known so that we wouldn't be forced believe in God..." are investing in an apologia more than they are definiting the term "miraculous".
While they may deeply believe this is why miracles are rarely seen in today's age, I don't believe we can use this as a strict definition for a miracle.
In fact, for the ardent apologists, these are not mutually exclusive ideas. He can still do miraculous things and he can make them more subtle than most can detect.
